Review | Born Pretty Loose Powder*

I was recently sent some products to review from online beauty store Born Pretty, one of which was this loose face powder*; it's branded as By Nanda which is apparently a Korean brand, and is available in three shades, of which I have #802. Have a little look at what I've thought!
Born Pretty Loose Powder Review
The powder is housed in a pretty mint-green plastic jar with a screw-cap, which I really like; the branding is quite nice and it doesn't look cheap or tacky, despite its low price-tag. One thing I would say is the jar is a little smaller than the average loose powder container, containing only 3.5g of product compared to around 10g in most other powders I've owned. The jar contains a little powder puff which I don't use as I found I struggled to get an even application with it.

The shade I have, #802, is quite fair, as shown below; also available are #800, which looks to be a translucent powder, and #803, which is a little darker. The powder is finely milled and smooth in texture, applying beautifully with my Real Techniques powder brush - my only difficulty is actually getting product on my brush, as the head of the brush is bigger than the jar!
BPS Powder Review
I find this powder works well to set my base make-up and does help to keep it in place without looking cakey, and I haven't noticed any oxidising through the day. It doesn't manage to keep me matte for more than 2-3 hours, but that's pretty standard and I'd be amazed if it did! In all I do think this is a really nice budget-friendly powder, and I'd definitely recommend it if you're after a basic, no-frills product to set your base. Obviously the limited shade range may be a problem for darker-skinned ladies, although the translucent shade may be worth a try?
BPS Loose Powder
Born Pretty's Loose Powder is available here, priced at £3.03 for 3.5g of product; remember you can take 10% off anything on the Born Pretty site when you use my code 'JESSMK31' at checkout! Have you ever tried cosmetics from Born Pretty? Would you use a budget powder like this?
